Special Offers for short breaks and current availability for day cruisers are shown under

Smaller hourly hire boats are available for collection between 10 am and 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays without a reservation – they are available mid week too, but you need to make a quick call to arrange.
Our private moorings are located next to Buscot Lock which is at the Head of the Thames and our hire fleet depart from The World Famous Trout Inn

We have been trading for over almost 25 years on this section of the river and have recently moved some activity from the lovely World Famous Trout Inn, where we have hire boats, to our own site.

Below are details of our holiday and weekend boats. We offer hourly & half day and day boat hires from The Trout Inn on weekends and Bank Holidays and聽 at other times with a reservation. (Weather permitting!) Additionally most holiday and short break hires still depart from there.

For more Thames information see

We offer Holiday, Short Break and Weekend Cruisers, and Day Hire Boats

We are located at The Head of The Thames where you can hire a boat for short periods to cruise the local Upper Reaches in The Scenic Cotswolds and The Thames Valley though Southern Oxfordshire including the Historic City of Oxford. Alternatively for longer hires聽 to cruise the full length of the Non Tidal River Thames.

We also have Moorings and Facilities for Private and Visiting Boaters

At our new premises we have 17 moorings and 3 visitor moorings. We offer amenities for local and visiting boats, including pump outs and water, have winter storage options and a ‘Boats for Sale’ section.

The World Famous Trout Inn – Lechlade

We have a riverside garden and during the summer we have a large marquee available for shelter. This, along with the Creel bar, which is a garden bar separate from the main building, can be booked for your wedding, party or business function. During the winter months we have a roaring log fire in the main bar, which has ancient wooden beams and some stone floors. We are not a fast food or gastro pub, just a family run country inn with a good range of real ales, ciders wines and spirits, all kept in a fine condition by Bob and a kitchen run with great panache by Penny.
